I have a customer who might want to host their company web site on the same physical server that is slated to be their KMS box.

This will be run on a Linux platform.

I know this can be done with VMWare, but I'm hoping there might be a less costly (both in terms of dollars and administrative overhead) solution.

WebMail, by default listens on 80/443, so if their company web site needs 80 can I just disable port 80 in KMS and let Apache serve on that port?

I'm mentally kicking around a few ideas - VMWare, UML, maybe a chrooted jail for Apache, etc..

Has anyone else run into this? If so how did you approach it?

You can just change the listening port of Kerio HTTP server (for example 8080), and let apache mange virtual hosts. When people connect to they'll have the company website, when they connect to, apache will redirect the request to the 8080 Kerio HTTP port.

I use the same mechanism for redirecting people from the 80 to the HTTPS (443) port, so they won't have to remember to type https://.
Here is the Vistual Host config :
<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName toto.lan
  CustomLog /var/log/apache2/toto-access.log combined
  ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/toto-error.log
  <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteLog /var/log/apache2/https_rewrite.log
    RewriteLogLevel 1
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
    RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [L,R]
